    The Fjord Sightseeing Cruise was on a large, comfortable boat and would have been a fabulous tour if it hadn't been so cold and rainy. The crew provided us with blankets and warm drinks were available. In spite of the weather, we enjoyed ourselves and discovered this fjord is unlike any other. I would recommend it.

    This cruise was just ok. We lucked out and had great weather. The narrations are pre-recorded, so it is not a live tour. You go VERY slowly, and since there isn't really much to point out, they play classical music between narrations and it WILL rock you to sleep. :) If the cruise went slightly faster, you could easily get this done in an hour. Also, this is not a "fjord" like you see in brochures. This is Oslo, so you're not seeing super high cliffs beside you. (Head elsewhere in Norway to see that beauty!) You'll see summer homes, and other landmarks, but nothing earth-shattering. The cruise was prompt--started and ended very timely.

    We really enjoyed our two hour trip. It's a good thing to do on day 1 as lots of important areas are pointed out to reference back to during your trip.

    It was absolutely freezing when we went, but we were all provided with blankets which were really well received by everyone. The hot chocolate on board is great too!

    There was not a boat available at the time I bought the tickets and the pdf tickets were not available. I’m still trying to get my money back, $167.00!!! I will never use a again!!!

    I loved this cruise; the sights and the whole feeling of it is just so lovely. I booked with Viator because of their cancellation policy and it was so easy, including the instructions for the cruise. Definitely worth the price!

    Conveniently located. Efficient operation. Comfortable. Great views of Oslo from the water as well as the lovely homes and scenery surrounding the Oslo Fijord. A very nice way to spend and evening is Oslo.

    We had a peaceful ride around the fjords with some informative narrations about the sites. The boat had plenty of room, the staff was friendly, and it lasted exactly two hours. They have some refreshments available but they are a bit pricey. We enjoyed the excursion and would recommend it to others.

    If you're in Oslo, and looking to see the fjord in a two-hour boat tour, departing from and arriving back right at the central dock, this is absolutely what you should do! A gorgeous boat with a courteous crew (snacks and drinks available on the boat as well), and a nice route. A suitable amount of commentary (in English), but not too much, a great balance between letting you take things in yourself and explaining some interesting landmarks and buildings.

    Beautiful sailing boat! Great Scenery easy to locate your! Do not miss it! Very reasonable to set up on your own prior to arriving! Great restaurant for seafood close to the pier! Enjoy

    It was great to see Oslo from the water and get a little history of the city. The boat ride was very pleasant and calming. It was quite chilly once we got going, but they had warm blankets to keep you warm.
